    It was an interview with Federer where Roger said him and Rafa met at the grounds in Wimby and Roger told Rafa he was sorry for his injuries. Roger did emphasize their meeting was very brief.

    Thanks. Interesting. Would be nice to see a quote, as always.

    I'm trying to remember. I think it was on Tennis Channel that I saw the interview.

    When did this happen? Nadal's still sticking around Wimby?

    Pretty cool, though. It'd be funny to see them hang out off-court.

    Federer said the conversation lasted only 20 seconds.

    Nadal congratulated Federer for his French Open win and Federer said he was sorry to hear about Nadal's knee problem. That was about it.

    i don't think they hate each other at all. i think they genuinely like each other and would be good friends but as competitive as their rivalry has been i'm sure they don't wanna be too friendly because it'd make playing each other even harder. more prolly for roger than nadal

    just my opinion
